Data & Privacy Training
Data protection laws move at speed, and keeping up with the changes can be a real challenge. All of our training is practical, engaging and interactive, and can be tailored to your interests and the requirements of your business.
Who should attend?
Those primarily interested in the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 and the incoming General Data Protection Regulation.
We provide training for sales and marketing managers, HR managers, IT and finance professionals as well as in-house lawyers, designed to give you a head start in avoiding legal problems and creating a compliance culture.
Format of the training sessions
We provide tailor made in-house data protection training for your organisation and can provide workbooks and checklists to take away. Training sessions can be of any length, from one hour to a full day, and can cover any data protection law topic of your choice.
They can be delivered in-house or at our premises in London.
The cost will depend on the duration of the session and the elements you would like to cover, but will always be agreed with you in advance.

The Law, the ‘Outlaws’ and Ad Tech’s O.K. Corral26 June 2019
Programmatic advertising is often likened by commentators to the Wild West: some because they consider it to be a lawless place where anything goes; others because it pushes boundaries and is creating a new frontier. Wherever you stand on that metaphor, ad tech is looking like it’s about to have its own ‘Gunfight at the O.K. Corral’ moment – a shootout in the EU prompted by a long-simmering feud between privacy’s ‘lawmen’ and the advertising industry’s ‘outlaws’ finally boiling over.
